ChainEX is a proudly South African private company, and currently, the only digital asset exchange that provides a platform for South Africans to buy, sell or trade over 20 different digital assets using the South African rand as the default fiat-buying currency for some.
ChainEX was founded early in 2018, but the dream of creating a digital asset exchange existed long before then…
In 2015, one of our executive team members was introduced to cryptocurrencies after eavesdropping on a conversation between two people over breakfast. Curiosity got the better of him, and after reading up on what he heard and researching the subject further, he decided he had to get involved. He didn’t know the details yet, but he knew he had to do something!
Eager to share his excitement about this newly discovered technology, he spoke to some of his friends (now shareholders) and spurred on by passion and excitement, with a vague idea of what they wanted to achieve, the journey to ChainEX began.
Then, with one random conversation, the team met a new friend, who also happened to be a systems architect. Our new friend had an overseas investment partner and wanted to launch a digital asset exchange. The difference, however, was that they KNEW how to do it! The rest, as they say, is history.
Ours may sound like a story that only happens by chance, once in a lifetime or only to a select few. But at ChainEX, we don’t believe in chance, coincidence or that success is only reserved for some. We believe in purpose and that if you make up your mind and follow your dreams wholeheartedly, believing that anything is possible, the rest will follow.
The future is bright at ChainEX as we continuously work on improving the ChainEX exchange by providing a trading platform that is secure, user-friendly and reliable with a well-tested, highly scalable matching engine. Our plans also include expanding our asset base by introducing more digital asset currencies to our trading platform, thereby providing South African users with an even better experience and more exposure to the world of cryptocurrencies.
So, please join us and share in something which is so much more than a platform that provides easy, quick and secure access to the crypto world market. Join us and experience the impossible!
